I thought Lutz hated the Art&Science theme? I was expecting it to look more like the Sixteen concept. I guess with Cadillac having such a great year with their new models, why stray from what works?

I had to do a double take since that looks so similar to the CTS.
I really didn't like the CTS at first; it's grown on me a bit, but I still hate the rear end. Hopefully the STS will have better rear styling.

I am guessing that this will become the new look for Cadillac and that eventually all of their cars will look CTSesque....not a huge fan of that look either, oh well.

I hated the CTS at first but I don't think it's that bad now (better than the BMW 7 series at any
rate) and I really like the CTS-V model.

I love the current version of the Seville. I would say this STS is an improvement on that.

As far as looking like a CTS, well, it's got similar lines, but it doesn't look like a larger version of the CTS. The STS has much better lines in the sheet metal

One thing though, I see this on many new models...is it just an optical illusion, or are the rear wheels smaller than the front ones?

There are some differences, but you really don't think this:

looks like this?

The STS does look a bit classier and I am sure is much larger in person, but overall they look pretty damn similar to me.

I guess there is a 4th person that likes the CTS.
Cadillac has a very unique styling like the Jaguar has its own styling.
It grows on you.
